Getting Ready for Back to School

Good evening Explorers,
This is Principal Graf with your Back to School messenger.  Can you believe our break is about to come to an end? I hope that you have enjoyed your summer.    

Here are the important dates you need to know about:

Due to the loss of our assessment program, mClass, we will not need our staggered entry days.  The first day of school will be July 25th for all students in grades 1-5. Kindergarteners follow the staggered entry schedule.  The website has been updated with this information. 

Meet the Families & Meet the Teacher Session

July 24, 2019 A-L: 5:00-6:00 p.m.

M-Z:  6:00-7:00 p.m.

During this session, you can find out your classroom teachers for students in grades 1-5, check on your transportation, add money to lunch accounts, apply for Free & Reduced Lunch, get carpool tags, update your PowerSchool contacts, and much more!
